The Keating Hotel is the first luxury “Boutique Hotel” in San Diego, a blend of Italian styling and sophisticated, personalised service. Designed by Pininfarina, at its first experience of hotel design, the Keating is located in a building dating to 1890 in the Gaslamp Quarter at the heart of the California town.
The hotel has 35 rooms on four floors, 72 beds, eight suites and an interior with an uncluttered, ergonomic, essential style in the best Pininfarina tradition, where the beauty of the forms blends with practicality in every detail.
In May 2008, the Keating was proclaimed the first winner of the Earth-Minded Awards by Hospitality Design magazine and by the American Society of Interior Designers. It received the award because the project provides a possible solution to the issue of sustainability. In June of the same year, the Keating was listed among the “33 best new business hotels” by the prestigious international magazine Fortune, which travelled the world with the design bible “Wallpaper”, looking for the loveliest and most hospitable spots for businessmen.
